Civil registers are civil status records of births, marriages and deaths, as well as other data about these facts as stipulated by law.

Civil registers are kept for each settlement according to registration area.

Civil status matters are handled by the competent administrative bodies of the counties and the Zagreb City Office of General Administration, while civil registers are kept by state civil servants - registrars.
